JUMP 165: Jordan is...
1:07:20Escape to hike the Jordan Trail, sleep under the stars, wander the Wadi Rum desert, visit the ancient city of Petra, and float in the Dead Sea. A little over four years ago, I took a group of adventurous podcast listeners to Jordan for the first time: to hike the Jordan Trail, sleep under the stars, wander the Wadi Rum desert, visit the ancient city of Petra, and float in the Dead Sea. It was, unequivocally, the most surprising place I’ve ever visited. And if you know me at all, you know that’s really saying something. Jordan is like nowhere I have ever been, and as I ramp up to go back in April 2023, I intentionally revisited this magical country through the two podcast episodes I created when I returned home from that original trip. As I transported myself back to 2018, immersing myself in nearly two hours of Jordanian adventure, culture, food, language, and people, not to mention many, many trip highlights and memories (and goats), and SO much laughter, I realized something… There's no way I couldn't NOT share this Jordan experience with YOU all over again. It's too good, too dreamy, too funny, and simply too delightful on a cloudy winter day to keep only for myself. So I hopped into my editing software and spliced two amazing episodes about Jordan into one NEW episode, to invite you back with me to this oh-so-special place, right here, right now. Grab your best travel escape headphones. We're going on a little trip. 👉🏼 Want to join us in person?
